of his second term. you just mentioned it again. the republican senator marco rubio has been taking the lead and jay carney, the white house press secretary had positive words about his proposals this week. but marco rubio said this week on bill owe rile we'll show the president hasn't reached out. take a look. >> they never talked to us about it and the truth is the way our republic is designed the president can design whether to sign or not. >> but you're a leader. shouldn't the president be conferring with leaders in the house and senate? >> well, we'll be more than happy to talk to him and explain my principles. >> he hasn't called. >> no. >> why not? >> there's going to be a debate and process over immigration reform and i think during that process, i think there will be discussions we, the president's administration have with members of congress and congress among themselves, but what's clear is the stars are aligned for immigration reform. by the way, it needs to be real immigration reform. >> but aren't you going to team up with marco rubio to get it done? >> there will be a
a big talker this morning. that's what florida senator marco rubio is discussing. >> telling bill o'reilly what problems he sees with the president's plan and why he doesn't think the plan won't work. >> it doesn't work pore nanfor y of the reasons you pointed out in the talking points memo. washington, d.c. had a similar gun ban. violent crime and murder sky rocketed in washington during the time of the bans. i am a concealed weapons permit in florida. i had to have a background check and be finger printed. >> you don't object to registering the gun, you don't object to background check on you. >> sure. that's the law in florida. we have something called 2010 life. if a crime is committed in position of a gun it's mandatory 10 years. if you use that gun you are away for life even the first time you commit that. what's happened is these criminals that use guns are in jail. >> rubio telling o'reilly he thinks the president's proposal was a greater indication of his opinion toward the second amendment. >> again, do you think the president is dom goggi demagogu the issue, states rights
. there are republicans like marco rubio and others who are speaking out about this because the republican party has to demonstrate that it has broad appeal. martha: ric chris wallace tphoeupbs mnow, anchor. i want to talk to you a little bit about the immigration issue. when i hear about marco rubio and see when he's working on now, you can't help but look forward. he had this idea about immigration before the president came out with his plan and mitt romney had ten opportunity to sign onto it. now condoleezzaa rice seems to be saying, we have to learn some lessons from the last election, the g.o.p. does in terms of how they treat this issue. >> absolutely. i mean look at the exit polls, 71% of hispanics, hiss are the fastest growing demographic to america and 71% of them voted for obama. back eight years prior to that in 2004 george w. bush got 44% of hispanics. romney continue even get 30%. that is the difference in a state like florida, and a a bunch much other states around the country. republicans have got to find way to say to hispanics that we are on your side, we welcome you, value you, and
. the assault weapons has nothing to do with handguns. not only that, senator marco rubio says it simply will not work because criminals always figure a way to get a gun in their hands. >> not just chicago. washington, d.c. had a very similar gun ban and it didn't work. violent crime and murder skyrocketed in washington during the time of those bans. i'm a concealed weapons permit holder in florida. that means i had to have a background check, be finger printed, take a gun safety course. >> you don't object to any of that? >> no. >> you don't object to registering the gun, you don't object to a background check on you? you think that's good? >> that's the law in florida. we have 1020 life. if a crime is committed in possession of a life it's a mandatory 10 years, if you pull out the gun a mandatory 20 years. these criminals are in jail. >>steve: senator rubio will be kwroeupbg -- joining us. >>brian: a terror group is holding at least a dozen people hostage including seven americans. >> here's what the latest is. the algerian army is surrounding a gas facility where hostages are being he
of a friend of mentor of mine, senator marco rubio, a moral argument and a fiscal conservative argument most especially from sochlt young people here that were brought as infants, perhaps, by moms and dads the valedictorians of the high schools, scar quarterbacks going to harvard and yale on scholarships. >> greta: how about the 12 million or so here illegally. >> i'm open for debate on it right now, i'd like to see senator marco rubio's lead on it. >> greta: and pass? >> and again, this is a -- number one, i think that --. >> greta: you're going to turn on-- and on the hot seat. >> am coming up next. we have-- what i don't want is something similar to what we talked about. surplus and obamacare, massive packages that are shoveled down the throats of the americans. we need to do it piece by piece and assess where we're at and what we can do to correct the situation. >> greta: and? >> i'll speak to both quick. obamacare i think a lot of that's going to collapse on its own weight. the president ran for reelection and the law hasn't been implemented. it's structured in a way i think is going to
on in the senate. this week we saw that senator marco rubio came out with a plan and is getting actually great endorsement from some of the right wing conservatives and pundits and influence makers in our party. and also from the wous. when was the last time you heard, you know, right wing conservative pundits and the white house agree on anything? they agreed that this plan was actually aed goo thing. so it looks like there is some hope on that. it's going to require a very delicate balancing act, by the white house, by democrats, and republicans in congress. >> and very quickly, what do you think it will look like in this second term? >> well, in terms of immigration, i do think that it is a priority for this president. it sounds like the republicans are getting to the point where, and we heard this right after the election, that they understood what they needed to do to attract latinos to the party, when you hear sean hannity talk about, we have to do comprehensive immigration reform, you know they've moved the needle. i think that marco's proposal is very positive. i've talked to a lot of
immigration? what would you like to see happen? marco rubio on the republican side has already laid out his plan. what's your reaction to what rubio is propose and what you want to see come out of the white house? >>. >> he loud a path to citizenship for dreamers, and i think that's essential. andrea, i think the main debate will be about legalization and specifically how do you legalize folks. you can have everything from guest and residenty, and that will be the debate in congress in the coming year. >> coming up, are you also going to be faced almost immediately with the whole crisis over the debt ceiling. not house has been holding really firm. what do you think about coming into this partisan divide coming up here in congress? >> well, i mean, i hope to be part of a freshman class and a group of folks in congress who can take care of the finances and systems without creating more self-inflicted wounds. we know that last time we went through this it hurt the stock market nationally. it hurt our bond ratings. we have to create something that doesn't create this self-inflicted wound every
campaign and people who are fighting guns when they see some of these crazy people like we see in marco rubio. >> does he really think banning assault weapons is going to stop mass murder? >> he believe that is, i think he believes in this and thinks this is huge. >> he's not a hypocrite he really believes his public policy. >> i think the president is not a believer in the second amendment, although states he is. the second amendment's in the constitution. i didn't write it, neither did you or he. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution or wants to reform it, have the guts to admit that. >> cenk: these guys all i didn't write the constitution. oh really, you didn't? you look 131 didn't write the constitution. the sub stops of it, second amendment, it says a well-regulated militia. do you believe in it or not? if you don't have a well regulated militia, shut up about it. >> they completely ignore it. what obama is calling for is totally common sense. there's no question about it. first of all his executive orders are common sense. what's wrong with background c
. >> what about if the president has to choose? gun control -- marco rubio on the republican side, putting forth, it fits well with what the president has to say. >> i think immigration reform is easier. that doesn't mean it's less important, but it's easier, gun safety and gun control will probably come first. that said, it's going to be a heavier lift on gun suppliers. >> you must know a lot about both sides of this, that an immigration deal can get done? not just a weak around the edges kind of thing, but a real long-term fix? >> i believe it will get done. i believe the american people on november 26th gave a mandate for congress to get it done. that's why you see people from both parties speaking out in favor of immigration. >> when we got to the state of texas, in particular, they said within two presidential cycles, the red state would effectively become more democratic and turn purple. do you see that happening? >> i do. for three reasons. texas has done better economically than most states. we had a real influx of folks moving in from other states that are moderating texas, and be
but of course violence control. and marco rubio has been weighing in on the government's proposals. >> what they proposed today will not affect anything that has happened in any of those places. >> i'm wondering if this is a bit of a problem, chip, as some other issues have been for republicans in the past that you have to talk like that if you want to get the nomination. it's going to be a little bit more difficult when you get to the general election. >> they're pretty tough words no question. right now like we said, we are a long way away from that. but there's another way, i think we can talk about the issues, talk about what we would do, and not be negative. i this that's the pathway to take. >> so you think chris christie is being smarter on this? >> i think they have all got to take their own path, but talk about what we believe and why we're standing up for our second amendment rights. >> we talked a little bit about hillary clinton, you also have joe biden, he's been ahead of this issue for a long time and a pers -- and senator gill brand, used to talk about how she had a gun under
here get citizenship. host: where is that coming from? guest: marco rubio is an important player from florida. he is a cuban-american and he has put forth a plan that would provide citizenship under strict circumstances for people who came to the country illegally. that is pretty big and house republicans have their own plan, some members are putting forward similar plans. obama has his own plan that we will hear about so and then that will look lot like what democrats, with a few more years ago and it is more liberal and is less likely that democrats will embrace that. the fact that both sides are talking about it suggests there is a possibility they could come together and do something within this next congress -- in this next congress behind immigration. republicans did not very do well in this election with the hispanic. they feel like they cannot completely abandon hispanics. they need to show they have some empathy for folks who are here illegally. host: when you look at the line of the senate, you of marco rubio and you have jeff lake, republican from arizona, and you have more

. >> marco rubio yesterday was quoted as saying, nothing that the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. do you agree? >> that's probably true. a woman had guns, it wasn't her son that -- i don't know if she ever went through a background check, but the son certainly didn't. he took his mother's guns and killed people. but that doesn't mean having fewer guns around is a better idea. it's that there are people that go through traffic lights. they just run a red light. does that mean we should getid of all traffic lights? no. in a ma crosense, these laws do work. >> and the ridiculist all at the toll of the hour. erin? >> anderson, thank you very much. >>> now our fifth story "outfront." we're going to talk about manti te'o, a victim or a conspirator? the mystery deepens tonight as we learn more about how the notre dame linebacker was supposedly tricked into an online relationship with a woman who did not exist. now, our ted rowlands is "outfront" on the notre dame university campus. ted, a lot of details on this at this point clearly do not add up. first, the t
marco rubio, hispanic from florida. we have african-american senator tim scott, just appointed. 24s pretty good stuff. >> it is. >> the question is if you did so well on the diversity issues at the state level for these gubernatorial and senate races why can't you get it done at the presidential level? >> well, the presidential level is a little different thing that i'm in charge of at the house level, but we had 21 women candidates and incumbents, all of whom the democrats targeted and replaced with men. you know, we have done a pretty good job, but not as good as we can do at recruitment. we lost african-american candidates and incumbents like allen west and mia love out in utah. so we've got our work to do, but we've had some terrific candidates. we've got terrific members now. we need to listen and learn and do a better job of communicating to get at the issues you're talking about, larry, which is what all americans want. it's a better economy. how do you have a president, as you talked about, that has a jobs council that only meets once? >> i know. it's xwroerd. >> come on. >>
? >> you're already seeing a lot of this immigration reform push with senator marco rubio taking the lead on that, but you're seeing paul ryan join up and the chamber of commerce is starting to get onboard with whatever that republican proposal will be. so i think that that can end up being a moment of unity for everyone and it's possible and there's always rancor in washington. >> there's concern about how they talk about these issues and getting to understand certain things they do and say will be interpreted differently especially by spanish-speaking hispanics and those that are willing to vote republican. >> even the decisions to stop using the word rape, you know? you would think that at some point this is something that members alone would have come to the conclusion of. kristin a thank you very much. ed o'keefe, thank you. do wear your glasses on the air next. they'll become part of your new look. >> there you go. >> excellent! >>> from the city of angels to washington, d.c., coming up, the mayor of los angeles will join us to talk about what christina said was the future of immigr
a talk that maybe immigration reform is a place there could be common ground. you heard marco rubio in the senate, paul ripe in the house, and maybe we can have like george w. bush, a republin vision that had legal status and maybe even citizenship for those in this country illegally, ballpark number about 10 million. would a tea party member like you support that? in the past, you've called that amnesty. >> that would be real hard for me, and i defined amnesty, and not many have because they want the broader definition when it's convenient. to grant amnesty is to pardon immigration law breakers and reward them with the objective of their crime. if that's what this bill does, it would fit the definition of amnesty. >> could your speaker survive if he allowed that bill to come to the floor of the house of representatives? >> i think we'd want to look at the language on that. john boehner's tone and his body language and everything i heard him say at the retreat in williamsburg, he and our leadership team was all about how we pull our conference together and work together. i don't thi
, on immigration reform, which is another subject close to your heart. you saw marco rubio, the senator from florida's proposals, are you on board with him? >> he's making progress. i salute him for that. he's got the courage to taken o his own caucus and say, we need comprehensive immigration reform. we need a pathway for citizenship. there's probably a difference of opinion on how long it takes to earn that legalized pathway to citizenship. but it's a great start. i'm looking forward to a partner, senator mccain, lin graham and now marco rubio joining the very important debate and the conversation about how we fix this broken immigration system. >> you're going to have an alliance with lindsey graham, senator mccain and senator rubio, you might get some comprehensive immigration reform. >> i hope so. >>> tasteless or tribute? up next, we have some information on the growing controversy behind the very unlikely pairing of fashion models with the superstorm sandy first responders.

important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on board. host: we are awaiting the luncheon, which will be wrapping up shortly, and we will hear from the speaker of the house, as well as the president, and at truck schumer, lamar alexander comedy cochairs of the joint congressional committee -- and chuck schumer, lamar alexander, the cochairs of the joint congressional committee on the inauguration. there was a sense of bipartisanship, at least to

in time. host: here is a snapshot of politifact's website. we see senator marco rubio being examined. also, phil gingrey in georgia. saul, from new york, on the independent line. caller: since 2008, when john mccain was running for president, republicans have been claiming that if they raise the capital gains taxes, which obama wanted to do, and dividends taxes 15%, that is going to hurt people and retirement plans. they have been scary people that way. elderly people right -- they have been scaring people that way. elie people right now, on their 401 k, everybody knows that when you take money out of the retirement plan, you pay ordinary income taxes. you don't get the 15% tax break that rich people get when they have been outside the retirement plan. nobody has been saying anything about it. no news media, no politicians, no democrats. i would like to hear what he says about that. guest: sure, saul. we have done a lot of fact checks on claims about taxes, and i would interview to go to our website, politifact.com, and -- ifnder truth-o-meter it is a factual claim, we will check it. where
george. charles: you mention the second amendment. i want to play a clip from senator marco rubio and get your reaction. >> i think the president doesn't have the guts to admit it, does not believe in the second amendment although he said he is. these guys, the second amendment is in the constitution. i didn't write the constitution and needed to you. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution or a few wants to reform the second amendment have the guts to admit that. judge napolitano: senator rubio is right. in an unguarded moment when he was senator obama heat mock religion and people who claimed done for security. that is an indication of his feelings about them. when it comes to a tradition the city of chicago which was so anti second amendment the supreme court of the united states, a two majority opinions to tell chicago you can't stop people from purchasing and keeping arms in their home. the president comes from that tradition and senator rubio is correct. charles: let's check the markets. last time we checked the dow was up 32 points and starting to gain fra
based on what senator marco rubio of florida, republican, has put out there. he's put some ideas out there. do you -- do you endorse liz ideas? guest: i have not spoken to senator rubio yet, but we welcome those ideas. there are others in the house that are working on specific proposals and wider ranging proposals, and we want to take a look at this. you know, we are a nation of immigrants. there is not a person to be found who's a u.s. citizen who can't go back a few generations or several generations and find someone in their family who came to the united states to better their lives. my grandfather came from germany. my wife's parents came from ireland. this is a very, very common thing. we are also a nation of laws. so finding a way to address this issue and fix a very broken immigration system will entail looking at a lot of different pieces of this, including enforcement and what you do with the millions of people who are not lawfully in the united states today. so we're willing to look at all those things and see what kind of common ground we can find. we're prepared to see ho
